    was thinking about doing a modding tutor course to help others learn to mod their bbs's.

    Great idea. I'd enjoy reading that.

    I just setup a fresh install of Debian 9 on a desktop machine I had kicking around.. only 32 bit but I am going to use it for MPL development so I dont interfere with anything on my main BBS..

    I used to program on the Amiga back in the day so I have some knowledge, and looking at some sample MPL code it's somewhat familiar .. just very rusty..

    The first project I want to do is a simple last callers tool.. what is a good place to start? When I coded BBS tools for Cnet/3 there was default .c source file that contained the guts to be able to make calls to the BBS directly to get info..

    Is there a 'skeleton' MPS script I can use as a base for my project?

    Or is MPL plug-n-play .. add routins you only need to use and getuser data at will?

    mpl is pascal base syntax and getting verbatim as g00r00 works on it.

    the docs that are out there and the wiki. gryphon updated them to reflect
    1.11 at the time and you can find that on his board or mine.

    its all in the docs and look at the mps source the uses has calls for a particular function to access.

    things lol
